Making the Shift from On-Premises to Cloud Financial Management

Crossref is a global nonprofit membership organization that serves around 5,000 scholarly publishers across the United States, Europe, and developing nations around the world, as well as the wider community. Previously, the organization struggled to keep up with its rapid growth using an outdated on-premises Sage Peachtree accounting system. Because the nonprofit’s CRM system wasn’t integrated with Peachtree, Crossref’s finance team spent a lot of time on duplicate data entry and tedious Excel-based processes, as well as printing and scanning reports for management in other offices. 

The association worked with Sage Intacct's professional services team to implement its new cloud-based financial management solution and optimize several processes across systems. 

We’ve streamlined our financial processes across the board, which saves about $45,000 in headcount each year despite our 53% revenue growth and significant transaction volume increase since adopting Sage Intacct. More importantly, we’ve reduced potential errors and liability by having more accurate, reliable financial data about our business in Sage Intacct.
